A Prayer for Vision

God our Father,

You are eternal.
You are yesterday, today, and forever.
You are then, now, and always.
From everlasting to everlasting You are God.

You are Creator.
You created the heavens and the earth.
You created humankind.
And it was good. Very good.

You are the Re-creator.
You re-create the new heavens and the new earth.
You re-create Your people.
You make all things new.
And it will be good. Very good.

And so, our God, we sit in Your presence.
In the presence of the Eternal One who knows tomorrow.
In the presence of the Creator.
In the presence of the Re-creator.
We sit.
We sit still.
We sit quietly.
We listen.
We wait.
We seek.

We want to dream.
We want vision.
We want to throw off human limitations.
We want Your vision to be cast among us.

What would You have our church to be?
What goals do You desire?
What values do You want us to accept?
What mission do You want us to begin?
Where are we going?
Where are You leading us?

Vision.
Give us vision, O God.
Your vision.
Your vision for Your people.
Your vision for Your church.

We are listening, God…

We are listening…

We are listening….

In Jesus’ name,
AMEN
